    what the right is pushing, though it seems even mainstream media has questioned it....comparing it to mitt's critter shooting comment or other politician's oddities about hunting over the years. They talk like he was trying to impress someone. Who? The reporter by answering her question?

    He was asked if he ever shot, he answered... the "why didn't we hear about it before" stuff is stupid. Why would he bring it up unless he was asked or in situations like meeting the shooters.
    "Where are the pictures?" they asked
    but they didn't like the picture.

    It's not relevant to anything. Should it be part of his state of the union address? The gun debate? Financial negotiations?
    I've shot skeet. Most people who know me Don't know that...and I don't have any pictures. What ever shall I do?

    •  I agree that it is not relevant (1+ / 0-)

      to anything.  And while they obsess about this stuff and while the White House fuels the fire and releases more badass president pictures, how does that help anything?

      is that they always think they can catch the president in a lie. But he doesn't lie. And he doesn't "pose."  Disagree with him as you may, but he's his own man, and a decent one.  Not to mention too smart to get caught in the kind of trap other politicians get caught in all the time---trying to appear to be someone they are not.
